Getting Rhythmic with Soundtoys Plug-Ins Part 2

Mitch Thomas from SoundToys shows off the cool tricks and effects of the SoundToys plug-in collection

Manufacturer's Description from SoundToys

We're big on analog. We think that sound is important. So we designed FilterFreak to be fat. To be warm. To be, well, analog. All the reviews and feedback say we got it. We also designed it to do all the things you do with filters. From funky envelope followers like Mutron to classic synth style reshaping with ADSR, to big resonant LFO sweeps like the Sherman Filterbank, as well as the classic sound of the old Morley WahWah pedals. Even two flavors of the great old Sci-Fi sample and hold sound. But a plug-in needs to be more. So, we added a unique Rhythm Mode that lets you create cool custom patterns that lock to MIDI. All the fat and the flexibility of a whole closet full of filters and beyond

Analog Sound

You can select emulations of different filter types to get a wide range of classic sounds. Crank up the resonance to make it squeal. Flip on the Analog Mode switch and hit it hard to add Dirt, Pump, Shred or Fat. Yep, you can hit it hard coming in and going out, kind of like that old piece of hardware, only no batteries or cables, just great analog sound. (Oh and simulated wood side panels)

Rhythm and Groove

While tweaking knobs is always fun, FilterFreak also includes rhythm and groove tools that add motion to your tracks automatically. Turn on Rhythm Mode and flip the MIDI switch to create auto-wah effects that sync to your DAW.

Choose a simple note value like eighths or sixteenths, select from a library of pre-made rhythms, or even design your own rhythmic patterns using the Rhythm Editor. Then, to perfectly match the feel of your tune, grab the Groove knob and add some swing or shuffle to drop it in the pocket. For effects that move with the music, choose the Envelope or ADSR modes to trigger the filter with incoming audio. You’ll be amazed by how much one plug-in can transform the feel of your tracks.

Double Your Pleasure

Need more power? Fire up FilterFreak2 (It's part of the package). That's two fat analog filters you can run serial or parallel for total filter dominance. Each can select from Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass and Band Reject. As well as, 2, 4, 6, or 8 pole filters. Bass, guitar, drums, synths, vocals, anything you want to put through it and anyway you want it.

The fat analog sound of classic filters for any style of music.

Funk up a guitar, fatten bass, reshape drums, sweep synths and freak out vocals with our different mod modes.

Unlock creativity with custom rhythms you create in our Rhythm Editor. Lock to MIDI with a flip of a switch.

About Manufacturer

SoundToys is dedicated to bringing color, character, and creativity to the world of digital audio. We're truly fanatical about audio toys - both creating new ones and collecting old ones. Our toy collection runs from the 'classic' gear like the EQP-1, 1176, 1073, LA-2, 550a, ATR-102 (all the must-have numbers) to pedals and effects like Binson EchoRec, JetPhase, EP-1, Federal Compressors, FuzzFaces, Dim-D, Tri-Stereo Chorus, and on, and on.... All of this stuff is great inspiration for us, and helps us to know what 'good' sounds like. We'll try to get some pictures of our toy collection on-line, soon. In our 'past', we were responsible for designing some pretty insane effects gear - the H3000 (and all it's various colors) and the DSP4000, way back when we were designers at Eventide. We've somehow managed to morph ourselves from hardware designers to software designers. SoundToys lives in Burlington, the biggest "city" in Vermont. We've probably got more cows than people in Vermont, so calling it a city is a bit of a stretch. It's a very cool place to live, especially if you're into sailing, hiking, skiing, or snowboarding, or just like living in a place where rush hour traffic is half a dozen cars at a stop light. And, it IS the home of SoundToys, as well as Burton Snowboards, Ben and Jerry's ice cream, Phish, and the University of Vermont. You might think that Vermont's a strange place for a high-tech software company to live, maybe expecting stuff like granola and organic dairy products. Well, we feel like we fit right in, and 'organic' is definitely something we're into. We're determined to make digital feel and sound truly organic and warm, and we hope you feel the same way.
